Rape Educators Focus on Bar Staff in New Zealand

Freitag 18. Dezember 2009 von htm

„Rape educators want to train New Zealand’s bar staff to intervene when they see ‚predatory males‘ plying women with drinks during the Rugby World Cup. Rape Prevention Education (formerly Rape Crisis) has teamed up with the police, Accident Compensation Corporation and the hospitality industry to train 130 bar staff in Auckland and Wellington in a pilot programme this year. Director Kim McGregor said she hoped the other agencies would help to extend the programme nationally in the lead-up to the World Cup, which kicks off in September 2011. ‚We need to do much more on prevention and social attitudes, for example around the [Cup],‘ she said. ‚For us it’s an opportunity. We have two years to prepare for it.‘ The programme targets bars because three-quarters of sexual offenders and half of all „date rape“ victims were drinking or taking drugs before offences occurred. A fifth of sexual violence happens in or around licensed premises.“ (Source: Harvard World Health News, 12/17/09) The New Zealand Herald, 12/12/09

NIDA Offers Substance Abuse Resources for Medical Education

Mittwoch 2. Dezember 2009 von htm

The rigors of medical training sharpen a doctor’s ability to diagnose and treat a wide variety of human afflictions. However, drug abuse and addiction are often insufficiently covered in medical school curricula, despite the fact that drug use affects a wide range of health conditions and drug abuse and addiction are themselves major public health issues.
To improve drug abuse and addiction training of future physicians, the National Institute on Drug Abuse(NIDA), part of the National Institutes of Health, unveiled a series of new teaching tools, through its Centers of Excellence for Physician Information Program (NIDA CoEs), at the Association of American Medical Colleges 2009 Annual Meeting’s „Innovations in Medical Education“ Exhibit in Boston.
